Conference Objectives ·Raise awareness of brewing and the growing the craft of brewing your own beer. ·Share brewing knowledge and experience. ·Provide inspiration, ideas and motivation for brewers. ·Improve the quality of South African brewed beer. ·Build relationships between South African brewers and the extended community. ·Help establish links between service providers and the brewing community.
What can I expect at Beer Boot Camp Symposium? Beer Boot Camp consists of two main areas: a learning space, and an area for partners to display their products or services.
The learning space is where the education sessions take place. In sessions you will not only learn but get to ask questions of very knowledgeable and experienced brew experts. Sessions are made up of group and break away elective sessions.
The partner area is where you get to see the latest brewing paraphernalia in action, meet brewing supply retailers, purchase merchandise and brewing supplies, and get the chance to ask advice from the experts who deal in the brewing products you use. This will also be where you can meet some of the top beer book authors, buy their books, and get them signed. It is also where you will also have a chance to meet some of the top craft brewers in South Africa, learn more about their beer and of course get a chance to drink it.
The Symposium also includes lunch, 'goodie bag' , a tasting glass AND free access to the Brewers Family Day on 13th August. The Brewers Family Day is designed for brewers to bring their spouses and kids along for a fun day out. There will be entertainment on the go for the whole family, a homebrew club competition, and short informative brewing education sessions during the day. Tickets are only needed to attend the education sessions on this day, not to attend the general event, and only if no ticket for the Symposium on Saturday has been purchased.
